Surprised it took them this long. Might be another year or two before Philly is competitive again.

The Phillies will probably take (one of the guys who should be considered for) our next manager.

I found this an interesting statement.

"Dipoto is one of the bright young minds in the game. The problem is that he hasnít been able to carry out his vision for the Angels because most of his moves have backfired."

Rumors are around that the Phils will hand the reins to Ryne Sandberg.

Couldn't read the rest of the hot seat list-- wonder if Robin was on it?

With his connections to the 1990's era Indians, I would expect Charlie Manual to manage the White Sox next year. Jerry/Kenny are running out of people from that organization to hire.

I don't think Manuel was the problem there, Ruben Amaro is. Perhaps not too unlike the White Sox of the recent past, they're holding on to a core that is increasingly older, more expensive, and on the decline. The difference being that their core was both better and thus much more expensive to maintain.

No. Redmond and Gibbons.

I don't think Ventura's seat is hot.

I don't have any objections to Robin at this point, but even so, I would LOVE to see Charlie Manuel managing the White Sox.

Only if we had a veteran team. Manuel is 69 years old. He might be the right short-term fix for a team that is looking to win it all in 2014. Maybe the Nationals. The Sox will probably be fielding a younger group next year. It will likely be a transitional season. Robin is probably a better fit to manage a group like that than the team we've had the past two years.

This is true, but then again, Jack McKeon did a hell of a job with the 2003 Marlins and he was no spring chicken either. But yes, I think Robin will be fine with the type of team we'll be fielding in the near future.

The only managers with MLB experience under this ownership were Torborg and Fregosi, both were on the cheap. Charlie Manuel will cost, it wont happen.
